snoop warren nate1 300x160 Nate Dogg Tribute at the Los Angeles DUB Car ShowPassing away of rapper Nate Dogg is still fresh in the minds of his fans, and the air at the 2011 DUB car show and concert held at Los Angeles Convention Center on March 27th. Many still in grief as the late rapper’s colleagues and fans turned up in bunches to catch a glimpse of the hottest wheels in town. The event was attended by several high profile music artists such as Lupe Fiasco, the Game, Lazy Bone and Waka Flocka Flame.

The exhibition was staged a day after Nate was laid to rest, and even though it wasn’t a memorial for the former Death Row musician, it eventually turned out to be an event where his music was celebrated yet again when his long-time pal DJ Quik decided to play Nate-only music. The DJ/producer also introduced Nate’s song Nigel to the listeners and he rapped his father’s highly acclaimed record ‘Regulate’.

Wale the next Kayne West? Rick Ross says yes.

Ross believes Wale’s potential is of the same level as of Kanye West and Yeezy, Wale also has an unorthodox style that could eventually make him as big of a star as West. In an interview with MTV, Ross boldly predicted that Wale is destined to emulate Kanye’s success one day.

Ross, who recently signed both Wale and Meek Mill, said that both his new acquisitions may be a little different than what is being heard in the music industry at the moment, however both appear to feel very comfortable in their enviroment.
